Beta Breakthrough Juice Fast Day 1

Well today is the day! My husband and I are starting our cleanse. For the most part Josh and I live a pretty healthy lifestyle. The last two years especially we have become more aware of what types of food we are putting into our bodies. Regardless of how healthy a person eats it is always nice to give your digestive system a break. By taking a few days and infusing the body with juice made from nutrient rich dense leafy greens the digestive systems gets a rest and the body can more readily absorb the nutrients allowing more energy to be expended in removing toxins. These types of cleanses have been proven to clear up the skin, give the body more energy, reset the taste buds, assist in weight loss, and improve the function of the immune system.

I am looking at this cleanse as a total body reset now that I have finished nursing. Women typically need one full year after having a baby until their body is completely recovered and hormone levels return to pre-preganacy levels. Now that Caden is a year old and I have finished nursing this is the perfect time to give my system a boost, assist in balancing out any nutrients that were depleted, and aid in cell repair.

This will be my first juice cleanse I have done. I want to make it clear that when I say “juice” and “cleanse” I am not talking about a store bought product or drinking lemonade all day. I am not a fan of these cleanse methods. Anytime you do something drastic to your body or detox in a manner that is unhealthy you risk toxins being released all at once leaving you feeling horrible. These types of cleanses can actually leave your body more unbalanced. There are many other ways you can safely cleanse and detox your body. Now to share more about what we are doing…

We will be juicing vegetables in our juicer for the next 14 days. Umm…wait a minute? Did you say 14 days of juicing? Are you crazy? That sounds drastic? 

Did I read your mind? Did anyone just think this while they read the last paragraph. Before you start to wonder if I will whittle away let me share the major details of our cleanse. If you would like even more information so you can do this protocol at home you can purchase the Beta Breakthrough guide for $27 HERE.

  • DAYS 1-4  & 8-14: We will be juicing nutrient rich greens every 2-4 hours during the day depending on how hungry we are for the first 4 days. Our produce that we will juice includes kale, chard, celery, cucumber, cabbage, parsley, lemon, and ginger. No fruits will be juiced during these 14 days or any vegetable that is high in sugar like carrots or beets. In addition to the green juice we will drink lots of water and/or green tea. Each of these days we are going to be doing cardio intervals for 30-45 at a moderate intensity.
  • DAYS 5-7 & 12-14: At this point in the cleanse we can begin to reintroduce protein, moderate carbs, and healthy fats into our diet. Our first meal on these days will always be a green juice. We have a list of approved proteins, carbs, and fats that we can use to create our remaining meals for each day. Each of these days we are going to be doing timed body weight circuits for 25 minutes.



WEIGHT 127 lb | WAIST 29″

I will measure again at day 7 and 14 and share my results with you all. I am off to drink my green juice! These next few days I will need to remember not to eat any of Caden’s food while I am feeding him. I have a habit of eating any of his leftovers or licking food that is dripping from his spoon. Do any other parents do this?

  1. I’m interested to see your progress! I’ve thought about doing a juice cleanse at some point after I’m done nursing this next time around. Will look forward to seeing how it goes!

  2. This is awesome! I don’t know if my husband would go for this! He is wanting to GAIN more as he builds muscle. He is very fit/cut, but to him he thinks he needs more weight on him. I WOULD LOVE TO HEAR FROM YOUR HUSBAND (hint hint) and see what benefits he sees in it for a man.

    I just started juicing on a pretty regular basis for the past about 3 weeks and am loving it. I am interested to follow along with your journey on a juice fast though!

    • Your husband would definitely benefit from a juice cleanse and would most likely see gains post cleanse as a result of doing it. Right now his, yours, Tams, mine, and pretty much everybody that follows a 4-6 spread out meal a day diet is walking around with a taxed/overworked digestive system. It is always working hard to use immediately accessible foods to feed/fuel your body, which for a good chunk of the population is over processed junk food. Even a lot of the food we eat thinking it is healthy is in fact not that good for us. So, the juice cleanse would allow his digestive system a much needed break which also makes it more efficient, making the food and supplements your husband is taking more beneficial than they were before because his body will be more sensitive/receptive to them. Now it’s really just a matter of the reputability of the supplements he is taking, remember the FDA does not regulate the supplement industry so use with caution. For him I would look into an alpha reset type cleanse, which is 3 days of juice only probably 5-6 juices a day for him, day 4 intro some protein in the morning (eggs are great, the whole thing none of this egg whites only nonsense), day 5 protein in the morning and again in the late afternoon/dinner. And then repeat every 6 months or so. It’s also not a bad idea to do a 1 day cleanse once every 2 weeks to a month. Also it is important for him not to lift heavy or do intense workouts on a cleanse, walking and yoga are great options. Hope that helps, i’m always interested in helping other guys get started, It is very beneficial for all of our goals no matter what they are. I’m sure I was just as if not more bullheaded than he is when it comes to the idea of a cleanse or yoga for that matter, just ask Tam. Good luck…

    • My hubby wrote a reply to you in the comments section :). Thanks for reading!

  3. I’ve always been interested in a juice cleanse. I’m looking forward to hearing your thoughts along the way.

  4. Wow! Good luck, that sounds really tough but I bet you will feel great when its all done. What are the approved proteins and carbs that you’re allowed?

  5. Hi Tamara,

    I tried purchasing the juice fast, but it won’t process it for me- it keeps directing me to an error page?

    Also, do the juice recipes taste good? or are they hard to put down?


    • Hi Courtney, You can try contacting fit HERE. If you have never juiced before you may want to start with another cleanse that offers more of a variety. Reboot with Joe has several that are good :).
